Jenna Bush Hager tearfully gives update on grandmother Barbara Bush's health

17 April 2018

Messages of support for former First Lady Barbara Bush are pouring in from people in ME and around the country, and now there is another to send in comments. "Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care", spokesman Jim McGrath said in a news release. The wife of former President George H.W. Bush and mother of former President George W. Bush suffers from congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. They affectionately call her "Ganny".

"Like a lawyer building her case, Ganny recited my every unsportsmanlike infraction, from lifting my skirt to the cheers I had chosen to yell in the heat of the moment", Bush Hager wrote. The pearls became synonymous with Bush, who later said she selected them to hide the wrinkles in her neck.
